  • Notes 
    • Thomas has served in the Revolutionary War along with his brother Isaac, according to Isaac's Pension application in 1838. (C-1991)
      Descendants say that he had all of his children by his first wife, Elizabeth Jay. He moved to Indiana after marrying his second wife, Elizabeth Voss. However, treat this second marriage with caution as there is a Thomas Jay who married an Elizabeth Vice in Union Co. (SC?) and left a will there. (C-2034)
      Maybe the confusion comes from the fact that there are two Thomas Write's listed in the 1790 Newberry Co., SC census. They lived in the same region and could easily be related. One had 2 males over 16, 1 under 16 and 2 females. The other 1 male over 16, 2 under 16 and 4 females. They lived in the same region as John (C.) Wright had lived.
